Harry has neared the end of his quarantine period and will on Thursday attend an unveiling of a statue of his late mother, Princess Diana. In a video message – the first appearance he has made since returning to the UK – he paid tribute to a group of young people honoured during a virtual ceremony for The Diana Award. Speaking about the awards, which recognise those who create and sustain positive change, Harry said: “I’m truly honoured to be celebrating your work, your commitment to change-making and the vital role that you’ve taken on representing a new generation of humanitarianism.
“Never be afraid to do what’s right. Stand up for what you believe in and trust that when you live by truth and in service to others, people will see that just as they did with my mum.”
Royal watchers are eagerly anticipating the event as it marks the first time he will meet with his brother Prince William since Prince Philip’s funeral in April, and after Harry appeared in yet more interviews talking about the Royal Family.
A newfound confidence in revealing aspects of royal life has pushed Harry and Meghan Markle firmly under the spotlight, despite the couple having left the UK and The Firm to pursue private lives.
Their interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey marked the watershed for a wave of further public interviews about the family.
Reports followed suggesting that William and the rest of the family were now unsure how often, and to what extent, Harry would talk to the media about them.
Maureen Callahan, a US columnist, writing for the New York Post said The Firm shouldn’t expect the interviews to stop any time soon.
In a piece that came just after Harry spoke during the first episode of his new Apple TV+ series, ‘The Me You Can’t See’, Ms Callahan wrote: “Just call him Dotty Harry.
“Clearly not content with his first strike two months ago — he and saucer-eyed, self-pitying wife Meghan whining to Oprah in a prime-time special — Harry is back again to blame his father, brother, and grandmother, the newly widowed Queen, for all that ails him, this 36-year-old globally famous multimillionaire.

“It’s Harry’s complaint, and we’re never going to hear the end of it.”
Shortly before this, many were taken aback when Harry spoke to celebrity Dax Shepard for the Armchair Expert.
It came not a month after Philip’s funeral, yet Harry took aim at his grandfather, the Queen and his father, Prince Charles.
He claimed that Charles’ upbringing by the Queen and Philip had negatively tainted his own childhood, describing what had been passed on to him as “genetic pain and suffering”.

In ‘The Me You Can’t See’ he confessed his struggles with mental health and being in a constant “fight or flight” mode because of royal life.
It is unclear whether he and William will discuss the contents of the interviews after they unveil Diana’s statue.
Only a handful of people, including her close family, are expected to attend the ceremony on Thursday.
It will mark what would have been the Princess’ 60th birthday.
Meghan has stayed behind in the US to look after the couple’s newborn, Lilibet Diana, who was born earlier this month, and son Archie, two.
In his awards speech, the Duke said: “Later this week, my brother and I are recognising what would have been our mum’s 60th birthday, and she would be so proud of you all for living an authentic life with purpose and with compassion for others.
“Our mum believed that young people have the power to change the world.”
